There are lots of Valley in Cappodocia but the famous one is Pigeon Valley. Pigeon pups are collected and you earn money by selling, the best organic fertilirize system for vineyard that is why Cappodocia wines are so delicious.

Like Goreme Valley, this too has amazing views, but it also has many pigeons whom you can feed and are quite friendly. Do visit it if you are in Cappadocia and do it for the views .....

Rug up, take plenty of fluids plus good hiking boots and then enjoy the walk. From Goreme it is a 3 or 4 hour trek.
